The 22-year-old is currently on loan with the Dutch side, and has actually been praised by boss Frank De Boer in recent times. However, the manager’s brother doesn’t think that the Frenchman is good enough for the club.
“I heard Frank say last week that this is one of the best squads he has ever worked with,” said De Boer, “However, when I see Sanogo I still have my doubts. I have still found no qualities with which you can do something.”
The striker has failed to impress in the Premier League, and was likely sent out on loan to the Eredivisie team in order to find some form. In 20 appearances for the Gunners he has scored only one goal, and even a temporary move to Crystal Palace didn’t work out. He scored once in 11 games for the Eagles.
